25 down, 2 to go!

I've got to be honest, despite starting C25K with the best of intentions, I never thought I'd make it to the end, yet here I am, having just completed W9R1 and I can almost see the finish line.

It's amazing how quickly you can get semi-fit, with just a small bit of dedication - it's only 30 minutes, 3 times a week! I did start the course last year, but, after doing well, I gave up at about week 5 and did my own thing, which seemed like a good idea, but took away all the structure. It's so easy to stop running when you get tired, whereas the lovely Laura helps push you on to the end.

I actually felt pretty sad when I listened to week 9 for the first time and heard Laura say goodbye at the end, goodness knows what I'll be like (hopefully) come Friday!

  • ahhh, maybe just keep listening to week 9 for ever... !

  • I'd not considered just how few runs it takes, it's even more impressive than I'd thought.

  • Well done you, I was just thinking about you last night when I dropped in here for a quick look at the posts, so glad you have got to week 9, as you say finish line is just around the corner now. Good luck and again well done.

  • Thanks all, I'm hoping to have a nice green badge by Friday and then going straight into Bridge to 10k. I'm going to try and get to 5k on Friday morning, so it may turn into a 35 minute run (easy to say when I'm crashed on the sofa!)
